briefing on the process to bring in defense, part of defense assets. it doesn't just come automatically. it's not their main mission and is a whole program of process that has to be followed in order to bring in the access. we partnered up with the department of emergency management. we did a briefing on what they call defense port civilian authorities. in 2011 we ratcheted it up with a stable top exercise with mass casualty evacuation. in 2012 back in august, we actually had a functional exercise where we set up command posts and we tested interoperable communications techniques and techniques on route clearing for mass debris route clearance. all of that is the lead agency in planning part of the emergency management with ralph and diane. and jill ray croft. it's all made possible by the waterfront department that is run by ann cronenberg. i'd loch for her to come up here and say a few words.

, if not impossible to defend. that's why mitt kept him on the defensive all the time, facts are stubborn things. he could not defend the record that he has, whether it be the effects of the stimulus package. i thought dad dodd frank was explained by mitt better than anybody i have ever seen before. of course, the view that president obama seems to think that government is more efficient and does things better than the private sector, which is all about this choice that people can make if they want to choose an alternative to traditional medicare. finally, you know, you notice that a president obama did not respond to the $761 billion taken out of medicare. he couldn't. because we tried to put it back in when we were debating obamacare, in fact, it was my amendment to put it back in and it went down on a party-line vote. >> greta: you know, while we sort of watch this -- obviously, politics vis very serious and there is a drama and intrigue to it. one of the things that was not discussed last night and which is really serious in and is ongoing is the sequestration. i realize there is only 90 minutes

failure to do that left him playing defense the entire evening and as a consequence you're exactly right. mitt romney did etch-a-sketch his way back to the middle something he had not been doing over the course of his campaign. he became the moderate which left a gaping, yawning gap between the positions he's taken and what he articulated last night. tim, let's come back to you on the issue of the $5 trillion tax cut, most of us are viewing that as basically a fundamental misstatement by governor romney. why didn't -- first do you agree it was a false statement by romney and second, if so, why didn't the president attack it as such? >> clearly false. strangest moment i had ever heard where you have a presidential candidate promising to veto his own economic agenda. it is just very, very strange. we're all talking about that today, too. i think that the president you know you open up the debates. you actually -- the president -- let the challenger get some punches in. i think by repeatedly and boldly and flamboyantly lying ab
that could take place as a result of congress failing to reach a debt deal. even the defense secretary said the cuts could be staef dating. does that hurt the president in the vet community? >> number one, congress must act and avoid sequestration op any of these defense cuts. number two, you know, governor romney seems to confuse the defense budget from the veterans budget. what i have spent the last several months talking about is the president's, not just his decisiveness as a what happeneder and chief and what a strong leader he's been and going after al qaeda around the world and eliminating osama bin laden from the face of the earth, but also honoring the commitment to veterans. you know, mitt romney, as you well know, spent his entire convention speech accepting his party's nomination to be commander in chief and didn't mention those serving in what will be america's longest war in afghanistan and didn't mention veterans once. his website didn't mention veterans until sometime this summer. the president has made sure we've honored our commitment to veterans, increased funding for vet
's dealing with them every day. didn't know how to frame the attack, frame the defense and he didn't do that well in his first debate with john kerry. i think exactly the same thing here. with obama sitting in those meetings saying i know this stuff, i deal with it all the time, but he hadn't been forced in a debate setting to say these are the offensive argument, defensive arguments these are the three points i want to make and i think that was part of his problem. >> i think one of sort of malpractice moments, the most obvious was the two-minute closing statement. you're a speechwriter, you're a columnist now, you prepare presidents. how does he not have a narrative? we talk about narratives and it becomes slangy, but telling a story, with a start, middle and end and he had a two-minute closer that sounded as chris mathews said, memorably, sounded like a concession speech. you know, i'm not a perfect man, i've made mistakes, i'm sure mitt romney would say i've made mistakes how is that the opening line of your two-minute closer? >> yeah. >> that he carried into the closing statement.
about how the white house may be trying to convince defense contractors not to send layoff warnings to workers before next month's election. the office of management and budget sent a memo last week saying the government could cover the cost that companies would face if they run into legal troubles for not properly warning those workers. here's the federal law and what it says. it says that companies with 100 or more workers must provide 60 days notice before mass layoffs or plant closings, or those workers can get up to 60 days of back pay if they are not notified. the republicans are crying foul and eamon javers picks under the story. >> reporter: here's what the omb said in late september -- it is neither necessary or appropriate for federal contractors to provide warn act notice to employees 60 days in advance of the potential sequestration because of the uncertainty about whether sequestration will occur. i've toualked to employees at t white house and omb about this question. their idea is this -- first of all, there's uncertainty about the fiscal cliff itself, whether it is a
of were the romney-type stocks, the defense stocks, some of the insurance stocks, were big market outperformers, where as some of the obama stocks, healthcare and so forth, were some of the comparative losers. so we definitely saw not only a market rally yesterday post the debate the day before, but we also saw it mostly in the mitt romney-type stocks. > > not to mention though we did have some decent economic data that also came into the market. but going back to the romney/obama matchup, the election is still a ways away. so could this be a buying opportunity for people who still think that healthcare reform will become a reality? > > absolutely. for those who are looking for a little pullback, and again, yesterday's move was not that great in the context of everything, but, we'll wait and see how big this will be if the romney stocks continue outperforming the obama stocks in the next week or so. so on any further dip, if you're a believer that the democrats will still hold the presidency, i think this may be the opportunity for people to jump into those names, and maybe if you
sucha and the "uss john c. stennis" is on the west coast. they have the aegis air defense system. the u.s. fleet says the two strike groups will provide a combat-ready force to protect and defend the collective maritime interests of the united states and its allies in the asia pacific region. the u.s. also plans to deploy new f-35 stealth fighter jets in the region. the f-35 is now in its final stage of development. it has an advanced network system to connect the aircraft with ground-based radar and aegis vessels which can provide integrated information to the pilots. >>> earlier i spoke to nhk world's senior commentator hisashi sua. so, hisashi, is it unusual to have two aircraft carriers in this region at the same time? >> no, it's not that unusual. u.s. navy policy says there should be a presence of twoiers in the region. but this is not always the case because of demands elsewhere, so "uss george washington" has its home base in japan. the "uss john c. stennis" is based on the u.s. west coast but is on its way to the persian gulf to join the fleet. it arrived in the western pacific
ladicals with safans. the american freedom defense initiative sued last month for the right to display the ads metro stations. they up in subway stations in new york city and the judge said they must be displayed in the d.c. area no later than 5:00 on monday. the metro sportsperson said that metro will comply with the order and the ads will go up this weekend. robert muse of the american freedom law center joins us live by phone. the attorney for a blogger who sued the right to put up the ads and good to have you with us, sir. >> it's great to be with you, sir. jot real fear here from metro, and i think, new york subways as well was the potential violence in the middle east, after the movie depicted someone who was bad or equated as a fraud. you didn't see it this way? no, in fact to equate that violence to anything that -- is pure speculation. one of the things can you see, and i am sure one of the viewers will see, all of the activity and violence going in the middle east. in a civil society, if you object to speech, the response to that is not to engage in violence but more speech a
on the offensive. was he going to be aggressive. he was. energetic, aggressive. he had a vigorous defense of free-market policy -- policy from the start and he also used personal stories along the campaign trail. you can tell that he really, really had his brief down, his practice with ohio center ron portman. and basically president obama dial the end, even his supporters looked at him and said, how can this be happening? when you heard a former vice president al gore today say -- or last night say that it could have been the altitude in colorado, you knew that something was going south. lou: i mean, that is -- well, the former vice president given now to interesting comments in a but that was one of the more interesting of the day. it seemed the left was hell bent on rationalizing the failure of the president sign not even really, it seemed, any kind of competition with governor romney. what was -- what was the sense they're in this ben run? i'm dying to hear your comments on what you heard in the way in which these two camps were spending the evening. >> it was amazing. the debate ended. of fi
that i got the sense that i thought not lay down but play defense. >> it reminded me of mitt romney debating in the primaries. how he would just stay back, let them all fight it out let them attack him and be impervious. but he was going up against a number of people. obama, if he adopted that strategy, he was going up against one person and it didn't work at all. what david was saying about 47% this is a silver lining thing but the 47% conversation leads itself to a town hall type of debate, which is what the next debate will be like. >> cenk: they'll come out much harder. please tell me that they learned their lesson. >> i think the president will come out, but romney has mojo now. he has confidence and he'll carry that into the next debate. >> cenk: will it make a difference. >> in the short term the debate will make a difference. i don't think it's an enduring change. even today you see the people first of all i saw a poll on cnn, 67% to 25% as we talked about. who are the 25% that felt the president won the debate. >> cenk: well, partisans. they're going to say obama won no mat
opposition says that rebels have captured an air defense base, new-- planes are pounding the central area of homes and said be to be the largest bombardments in months. and being extradited from britain to the u.s. al-masri's lawyers cited deteriorating mental and physical condition. the u.n. began talks on a broad trade embargo on iran. the islamic republic is reeling from western sanctions, amy kellogg shows us things are getting bad and worse. >> reporter: the iranian government can't afford to lose the support of these men, the conservative merchant class to played a big part in the 1979 islamic revolution, now turning on the regime. they're angry about the wild currency fluctuation, the iranian real left a third of its value against the dollar in a week and add to that a wave of unemployment and factories layoff they simply can't pay employees. >> and they're in the collections more serious economic situation and explosion of prices, which only in my eyes can be due to social unrests at levels we have nen seen since four years ago. >> sanctions have severely restricted iran's access
from the mainland, making it a highly defensible island. on the city side of the moat, demarest found the earth built up into a long, steep incline. demarest: see how steep this is right now, how difficult to come up. it was probably originally almost vertical. and it would have been much more difficult if you had some maya up at the top hurling spears and rocks down on you. keach: the archaeologists think that for further protection there would have been a tall wooden fence on top of the embankment. demarest: this whole thing seems to almost like overkill. you know, the degree of defensive construction is beyond what you would have thought was necessary. i think it emphasizes how things by this point had fallen to pieces in this region. keach: demarest believes the moat and fortifications are evidence that the dos pilas empire was coming apart at the seams. demarest: the territory was more than double the size of a standard large maya kingdom. so administratively it was beyond the capability of normal maya political organization and military organization. keach: in a.d. 760, two of t
wanted to talk about. women's health care was another focus and the president's defense of what even he now proudly calls obama care. >> i don't think a working mom in arlington should have to wait to get a mammogram because money is tight. i don't think a college student in fairfax or charlottesville should have to choose between textbooks or the preventive care she needs. that's why we passed this law. i'm proud of it. >> reporter: in contrast a shaky debate performance the president energetically jabbed back at his opponent, accusing mitt romney of misleading americans by promising to repeal obama care. >> and then his campaign had to come out and say, actually, that's not true or plan wouldn't do that. so, governor romney was fact checked by his own campaign. that's rough. that's rough. even they know his plan would take away coverage for tens of millions of americans. >> reporter: this supporter says health care reform is one reason she's sticking with the president. >> i am a breast cancer survivor and no one wants to insure me and thanks to obama care, it is okay to call it obama
you play the perfect defense when you have a lead, when you try to sit on the ball in basketball when you have got a lead, when you play conservative, what often happens is you lose the lead. and i can't for the life of me believe that that's what they did, but that's the only explanation. they told the president, don't be confrontational. they told the president, be above it all, act presidential. but the one thing that gets me when i was running for re-election as mayor and when i was running for re-election as governor and even d.a., i had a passion for what we'd accomplished. i had a passion to explain where we didn't accomplish something, why we didn't, what the roadblocks were, and he could have done that without being aggressive, without being snarky towards governor romney. but he could have said, governor, you haven't been there. i'm in this office and when i took over, the nation's financial structure was about to collapse. i did some very difficult things and it turned this country's fate around. we've added jobs 31 straight months in a row. we're moving in the right direct
to defense budget will mean to small businesses and factories that supply defense contractors and honor veterans. will these businesses be shut down? what we can our national security because a weakened economy? these are tough questions. veterans need to know that the american legion and our elected officials are working hard to resolve these issues. these men and women have sacrificed in ways we are only beginning to understand. their families have and will, it's truly up to us to ensure their sacrifices are rewarded, the promise of a brighter future. that brighter future we all know depends on the ability to earn a decent living. in my written testimony you will find jobs among american legion's list of priorities. a struggling economy is specifically improved career prospects for veterans. will go a long way towards solving the number of problems facing our nation today. it's no secret that a large percentage of american veterans are struggling to find work, having faced jobless rate is much is two-thirds higher than in the comparable civilian population in the past year. the americ
and then a choice of how do you defend your policies. what we saw him unveil in defense of the tax cuts on wednesday night was identical to the bush defense of the tax cuts which gave paul krugman an aneurysm writing two clumolumns week saying this is bs. george bush would say are you kidding? cut taxes for the wealthy that's not what i'm interested in doing. >> sort of the explanation of mitt romney is more what andrew sullivan has said, that he's just a salesman. so if he's in front of audience a, the sell is this. if he's in front of audience b, the sell is that and he's doing marketing proposals for whatever audience is in front of them because the real mitt romney is just a businessman and willing to sell the product to whoever it is, whether left, right, thought of being an ultraliberal would get him to be president he would say that. i just need the 51% i need, get me what i need. >> now he cares about the 100% and channeling the specter of h.w. bush and adopting the trickle down government line which to me, howard, you can explain this to everybody, to me that was do i end up with the depart
are the massive layoffs in the defense sector if congress can't resolve the fiscal cliff. eamon javers is here be more. >> let me bring you the guidance here that the white house is putting out, sending to federal defense contractors in particular, telling them they don't have to issue notices under the so-called warren act, which requires notices to employees in advance of mass layoffs. here's the guidance. they said, it is neither necessary or appropriate for federal contractors to provide w.a.r.n. act notices to employees 60 days in advance of the potential se questionsation because it's uncertain whether sequestration will occur. what the white house is doing here is heading off the possible that defense contractors, particularly in virginia, which is a political state that is very much in play this year, would be getting notices at the beginning of november saying, hey, you might lose your jobs if we go over the fiscal cliff. the administration argues that those notices are not necessary under the w.a.r.n. act because the fiscal cliff doesn't necessarily have to come true. also, if it doe
